Skate Park

Sculpture Celebrates Virginia Beach’s Wheeled Sports Culture

“Skate Park,” a 16-foot piece by Virginia artist Jeff L. Hall, was installed in March 2024 at Woodstock Skate Park, 5709 Providence Road. The work features an abstract, wheel tread-themed lighted base, which supports a series of stacked rings that frame a variety of energized silhouettes. The silhouettes capture people enjoying “wheeled” sports including skateboarding, roller blading, scootering and BMX biking.

 “Skate Park” is the second piece of public art at Woodstock Skate Park, following the murals created by Virginia Beach-based artist Brendan Tierney in 2021
